Milton Lodge


We viewed our first flat today, and only took us 15 minutes – I’ve spent more time deciding on a pair of boots!

From the outside, all looked well, although it was on quite a busy road.

What we liked:
Lovely wood flooring
Nice big hallway
High standard of decor
First floor flat

On the downside:
Kitchen and Bathroom smaller than we would like
Main bedroom lacked natural light
Lack of electrical sockets in main bedroom
No storage space
No allocated parking space

Viewing the flat made me realise that a good sized kitchen should be a priority on the big great Twickenham flat hunt

Home Sweet New Home?


We started on our hunt for a new home today – we saw our first flat. However, first we thought we’d better say what we were looking for:

Near to Twickenham Station (maximum of 10-15 minutes walk) – which would put it somewhere on this map
Total floorspace more than our current flat (55 sq m)
2 Bedrooms

After seeing our first flat today (see the next post), we added a new condition to our wish list:

A largish kitchen (our current one in 3.1m x 2.2m)
